The Seabed lidar system, equipped with a Puck sensor, provides complete above water point cloud data and can operate in harsh maritime conditions. The system conducts 3D data capture of intricate measurements of inshore, nearshore and inland waterways from up to 100 meters away. It is designed to be simple to mobilize and easy to use without the need for specialized training or qualifications, delivering rapid results that can save time and money.

The Seabed lidar system can be combined with a bathymetric multi-beam echo-sounder to provide a complete 3D, georeferenced image above and below water. The data can be used to rapidly inspect structural integrity of bridges, dams and piers, and be a resource for preservation and sustainability planning. Regular inspections of bridges and waterways are also important to improve navigation safety, especially in high traffic areas where the depth is shallow.

“We selected Velodyne’s Puck because it produces the high quality, consistent data our customers need,” said Elice Collewijn, General Manager, Seabed, which is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. “The Puck has demonstrated outstanding reliability and power efficiency while operating in severe offshore situations. The sensor allows us to capture vital, high-resolution data to accurately measure and analyze marine environments.”

“Seabed is helping companies transform their businesses with offshore 3D mapping solutions which can deliver highly accurate, detailed data collection to support safe navigation and protection of marine environments,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “Their solutions demonstrate how Velodyne’s sensors provide the performance, range and compact form factor needed for versatile mobile mapping systems that can enable a sustainable future.”

Velodyne Puck compact, versatile sensors deliver a high-resolution image to measure and analyze a variety of environments. They provide high quality resolution and performance along with a full 360-degree environmental view to deliver real-time 3D data.

While a referendum to include environmental protection in the Constitution could be held by the end of Emmanuel Macron's five-year term, climate protection initiatives are multiplying. To contribute to the debate, ISAE-SUPAERO is launching CAST: an innovative app that allows everyone to assess the climate impact of aviation by including all phases of the life cycle. A unique app that highlights the real carbon impact of aviation Thomas Planès, a doctoral student at ISAE-SUPAERO, has been working on this project for over a year as part of the CEDAR (*) eco-design research chair. Today, his research has resulted in a modeling tool that takes the form of an open access app. The CAST (Climate and Aviation - Sustainable Trajectories) tool allows anyone to estimate the impact that air transport will have on the climate up to 2050, depending on variables such as traffic volume, fuel consumption per passenger-kilometer, or the decarbonization of the fuel used. In addition to CO2 emissions, it
